In this article, I’ll show you how to achieve your ideal style, how to dress effortlessly cool and chic.
These are topics I’ve been working on for the past couple of years and have found to be really beneficial.
My style has improved slightly as I’ve tapped into each of them, and I’ve grown closer and closer to my dream style.
Hopefully, these tips will be useful to you as well, allowing you to create a wardrobe that you adore and establish a style that will last for many years.
My first piece of advice for achieving your desired style and dressing effortlessly cool is to get dressed.
This is the first item on my list because I’m sure many of us are in a similar predicament.
In the previous few years, I haven’t bothered to get dressed. Instead I’ve been just wearing loungewear and being really casual.
As a result of not having anyplace to go or the normal activities, I’ve fallen out of the practice of getting dressed.
Finally, I haven’t put it into practice.
Because I’ve made a conscious decision to get dressed almost every single day, I’ve discovered that I’ve tapped into so many things that I’d forgotten about. I’ve been able to flex that creative muscle once more. Get those muscles to operate once more.
Begin to become acquainted with what I enjoy and what is useful in my life.
I had to include it because it’s so easy to get caught up in the digital world, seeing a lot of inspiration and imagination but not allowing it to connect 100 percent to how we actually live. It’s critical to make that connection.
Make a concerted effort to get dressed in the morning. Use the outfits you’ve presumably spent a lot of time and effort developing. You’ll be able to discover things you like and dislike, as well as become more creative and enjoy the process.
My next piece of advice for achieving your goal style and dressing effortlessly chic is to determine your bare minimum.
This is something I’ve lately done for myself, since I’ve made a conscious effort to dress every day.
I’ve discovered that as long as some things are good, everything else is easy. I’m feeling a little more motivated to try new things and get dressed.
You may enable yourself to get ready in a way that doesn’t feel like an onerous effort by determining your basic minimum. Instead, it allows you to enjoy the process of getting ready.
I’ve spotted a couple myself.
My hair is the first. Everything else falls into place in a really easy manner as long as my hair is in a style that I enjoy and that corresponds to how I’m feeling that day. And any clothing will suffice. I have a little more freedom to experiment with other silhouettes.
That’s been a major one for me, and it’s probably the bare minimum.
The second is the jewelry I’m wearing as a whole. It has a significant influence on what I’m styling that day.
When I’m wearing a plain blouse, adding layered necklaces, excellent earrings, and stacked rings makes everything else feel better.
On days when I want to wear really simple things, that is my bare minimum.
When I’m not feeling inspired to get dressed, pulling one of my favorite comfy sweaters allows everything else to fall into place in a way that feels comfortable for me.
My next piece of advice for achieving your ideal look is to use a capsule wardrobe.
If you’re just starting out on your own style adventure, or if you’re feeling stuck and don’t know where to go, this will be quite helpful.
I’m a big fan of capsule wardrobes and have experimented with them over the previous few years. I don’t adhere to them as tightly as I formerly did. However, I continue to find them to be really effective.
I first came across them on Pinterest by accident. I was packing for a trip when I came across a well designed capsule wardrobe, which I used to create my own.
I’ve been able to take that interchangeable mentality and really start to learn what I like, what I don’t like, and how I can work with less components over the last couple of years. I’m able to make more informed purchases.
Look at your general wardrobe and then pull out a few pieces if you’re feeling lost or don’t know what your personal style is. Don’t declutter or throw anything away just yet.
Take a little capsule out of your pocket. Perhaps you should move it to the front of your closet, or if you have another closet, to that one.
Allow yourself a month, if not a couple of months, to become used to it. Start getting dressed and practicing mixing and matching, and you’ll quickly understand what you enjoy and don’t like.
Ad will also be able to distinguish between a fantasy life and a real life, as well as what is genuinely functional for you.
My next piece of advice for achieving your ideal look and dressing effortlessly cool is to stick to a color palette and utilize it to guide your future choices.
This is comparable to the capsule in that you don’t get rid of anything, especially if you’re just starting off, and instead isolate a color palette in your existing closet and work with that.
Start by determining which colors you prefer and which ones you dislike. What goes well together and makes you feel good.
This is helpful since having a wardrobe color palette can help you select things for your closet that will mix and match with what you already have and make you feel beautiful with little effort.
That, I’ve found, is quite beneficial in building a style that works within the context of your life.
The last thing I want to do is go to get dressed and feel absolutely overwhelmed because nothing I’m putting together is really working.
If you’re just starting out and aren’t sure what colors to wear, I recommend sticking to neutrals that are most likely already in your closet. Black, navy, gray, beige, and brown are just a few examples. That is something that many of us have.
They’re really easy to come by and may be found in a lot of closets.
You’ll start to figure out what you like and don’t like by isolating it and then occasionally bringing in a burst of color. Allow yourself to create a color palette after that.
Over the last few years, I’ve done that in a deliberate, methodical approach, and now my color pallet has increased in a smart, intentional way, with everything continuing to mix and match.
My next piece of advice for achieving your dream style and dressing effortlessly chic is to get comfortable repeating outfits.
This is critical since you’re building your wardrobe and putting it to use in a practical way, as well as getting dressed.
You’ll almost certainly begin to repeat combinations. The joy of personal style, in my opinion, is discovering those combinations that you adore within your own closet. And becoming at ease with them, as well as using them as a springboard.
An excellent foundation for various accessories, hair, makeup, and jewelry, as well as using it for its intended purpose.
Finding the connection between your ideal wardrobe and the wardrobe that serves you on days when you don’t want to be bothered is crucial when it comes to building your personal style.
Getting comfortable with wardrobe repetition while still feeling empowered is often the missing component, and it’s something I’ve worked on a lot in recent years.
This year, I’m concentrating on warm weather ensembles and outfit combinations that I don’t mind repeating when it’s really hot outside.
Because hot weather makes me unmotivated. I try to avoid dressing for it because I don’t enjoy it. That has left a gap in my closet, where I have a lot of wonderful clothing up to a point. This is something I’m putting a lot of effort on this year.
I strongly advise you to devote time to this for yourself, because making your wardrobe useful on days when nothing fits, nothing feels right, you’re exhausted, or you’re short on time is where a dream wardrobe truly comes into its own in real life.
This is a Journey
Last but not least, keep in mind that getting your dream style is a journey.
It’s incredibly personal, and it’ll probably alter over time. Your style will most likely represent your growth, evolution, and development as a person.
As you mature, allow yourself to have that flexibility and generosity.
Don’t get too hung up on anything and don’t feel obligated to anything. Allow yourself the opportunity to attempt new trends, try new styles, expand your color palette, and ultimately do what feels right for you at the time.
You can use all of this to your advantage now and in the future, especially if you’re unsure of how things will change, by beginning to educate yourself on high-quality colors that you know you love and are non-negotiable, perhaps different hair styling techniques that you can rely on to change up your closet, and ultimately spending time on things that will benefit you.
Allow yourself the flexibility to discover new things and ultimately make it a really personal experience, rather than focusing on a closet with only 75 pieces or a color palette with only two colors.
That is the most advantageous aspect of the entire adventure.
